Path to Practice

Yasmin Laskar, ’22

Tell me about something you've participated in during your time here that has defined your Pace experience.

My most defining experience at Pace was while working at the Mediation Practicum, an opportunity I found through the externship programs. I decided to pursue the practicum to gain a practical understanding of alternative dispute resolutions. Working at the Mediation Practicum bolstered my negotiation and mediation knowledge and skills.

What have you gotten out of that experience, and how do you expect that it will enable you to pursue your goals beyond Pace?

I learned the most from the Mediation Practicum supervisor, Professor Danielle Shalov, who empowered me to grow intellectually and professionally. I left feeling more confident and prepared to pursue a career in mediation.

Is there anything else you'd like to add about your time at Pace?

I am proud to be the President of Pace Law's Muslim Law Students Association.  We have a fantastic group and I look forward to another fulfilling year in my new role.  We hope to create a safe, fun, and welcoming environment for everyone.
